the city of providence, the state of rhode island is trying to deal with this morning. that is massive power outages, wet, thick snow falling on trees, on power lines. it means about nearly 200,000 homes here in rhode island are without power. that is what they're dealing with at this hour. some good news, some of those bridges out to places like newport, rhode island, have reopened. they closed late last night because of these sustained 58-mile-per-hour wind gusts we were getting. those have reopened. i-95, that huge interstate through massachusetts, connecticut, rhode island still closed, though. roads here in providence closed a's well since 5:00 eastern right now. illegal to be out driving on them. stay home. even though it looks better, stay home. we had a chance last night to hang out with this guy, let's bring him into the picture, colonel pete gaynor, who heads emergency transportation. snow plows, gps tracking their every move. you were up all night. give us a sense of the situation now here in providence and broader rohode island. where does it stand? >> it's been a long nigh

on the streets, you see cabs. not so much right now, huh? >> new york city, right? the city that never sleeps. this is a city that is in the middle of a deep slumber. when was the last time you saw the streets practically empty. look at the circle, columbus circle, practically empty. a couple cabs, maybe a snow plow if you're lucky, maybe a city bus. empty. it's like a white christmas today. isn't it? a winter wonderland. it is cold, i'll tell you that, but it's snowing and it's a quiet snow. not much wind going on. so really kind of a calm overhang on this evening in the middle of the night. the snow, though, is continuing to pile up. what i find interesting, though, is i really haven't seen many snow plows go by and the city has promised they were on patrol as of 7:00 tonight. perhaps they're in the boroughs in the neighborhoods making their way through. one interesting difference to this year, though, different from the blizzard that hit here in 2010, the city's kind of learned about it, learned from its mistakes, they have got kind of, brooke, a gps tracker of where the snow plows are. so
an extraordinary transformation, starting with you. when you look at what's happened to this city, and you made a documentary, that's a key part of that, how do you feel about your legacy? >> i will tell you, frankly .i believe that i created the foundation. i gave people back their morale. cy built 250,000 housing units and affordable rentals. and a whole host of other things. it it created the climate for what ultimately others after me, david dinkins and rudy giuliani and the new mayor, mike bloomberg, particularly him, have done. we are once again the international capital of the world. i honestly truly believe that. >> when you look at what's happening in the gun tonight in america, clearly new york made a clear stand about guns. and it's pretty successful. new york is becoming a pretty city, in comparison to cities like chicago? what's your view on the debate? >> i believe the constitutional amendment to really address the issue. when we're doing like we are doing it a little bit at a time and the united states supreme court has a tendency to strike down what we do, washington, d.c. banne
